I'm a little confused about the desciption about the compact gripper with the holes. I only see two holes instead of four as mentioned.

So I printed the crane parts fine, but I’m utterly confused as to how to use the string to make this move. Can anyone help?

Hi! yes I understand it might be a bit confusing. The line from the white lever goes to the side of the trolley, around a couple of times to secure it and then out to the edge of the arm and all the way back to the lever again. Make sure you have enough line on the lever wheel so that you have enough for it to be able to move all the way along the arm.The other line is firmly attached at the outer end of the arm, goes in to the trolley, down to the picker, up through the trolley and back to the other lever. This is how it achieves to stay the same height no matter where the trolley is located. When the lever wheel is turned so that it stretches the line, it raises the picker and vice versa. Hope this helps!

I am in the process of making this along with Emma, some trucks, now that they are posted, and all the boxes to fit inside Emma.
My printer will be VERY busy for the next few days! :)
when it is done I will post pics of EVERYTHING.
I can't wait!!!

Hey all,

How did everyone get the cables working? Mine just keep slipping.


Hi! good question, I should update the description with this. You need to roll the cable line multiple turns around the wheels, like a lot of turns. This will prevent it from slipping. You can also prior to assembly use something sharp and make lots of small cuts in the grove to make the surface less even.

muy bueno, el camion esta incluido? saludos.

No, el camión no es mi diseño. ¡gracias! https://www.thingiverse.com/vandragon_de/about (contactalo para stl)
